Torontonians invited to ‘Get Physical’ in support of
Rethink Breast Cancer
Toronto’s biggest soiree invited guests to shake, strut and shimmy to the beat in support of Rethink Breast Cancer at the 16th annual Boobyball fundraiser on Friday, October 13 at 8 p.m. at REBEL (11 Polson St.). Party-goers were transported back to the 80s and 90s and experienced an evening filled with pink cocktails and scrumptious treats.
This year’s fundraiser themed Let’s Get Physical, aimed to promote and celebrate regular physical activity – whether it was shimmying in the most luscious lycra or having an aerobic dance-off to the sickest beat – which helped reduce a woman’s lifetime risk of developing breast cancer.
To raise more funds for Rethink Breast Cancer, guests had a chance to hop on a totally rad retro pink bike at TOPSHOP’s ‘Get Physical’ lounge at Boobyball. Every time you sweated it out, TOPSHOP donated another $1 to Rethink.
Last year’s Boobyball events hosted 4,000 young philanthropists across Canada and since 2002, Boobyball has raised over $4.2 million dollars for Rethink Breast Cancer’s work for young women concerned about and affected by breast cancer. This year, Boobyball aims to raise $540,000 through its coast to coast events hosted in Toronto (Oct. 13), Calgary (Oct. 14), Vancouver (Oct. 21), Ottawa (Oct. 27) and Halifax (Oct. 28).

Boobyball was launched in 2002 by a group of dedicated young women in support of their friend Sarah O’Regan who, at just 23 years old, was diagnosed with aggressive, advanced breast cancer. Fast forward 16 years, and Boobyball is now one of the most coveted and high profile fundraising events for young philanthropists in Toronto, Calgary, Ottawa and Winnipeg, and Sarah is a thriving mother of three. Since 2002, Boobyball has raised over $4.2 million dollars for Rethink Breast Cancer’s work for young women concerned about and affected by breast cancer.
